Waiting on Wednesday 09/20/21
Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that first originated at Breaking the Spine but has since linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings now that the original creator is unable to host it anymore. Either way, this fun feature is a chance to showcase the upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!
I first became a fan of Jennifer Hillier when I read Jar of Hearts. Then I read Little Secrets, and thought that one was even better. Hoping that trend will continue with Things We Do in the Dark, which sounds like another winning combination of thrills and chills.
“A brilliant new thriller from the award-winning author of the breakout novels Little Secrets and Jar of Hearts – The secrets of the past come back around when a woman, long believed dead, turns up alive.
Joey Reyes had a rough life. At thirteen, they took her mother, Pearl, away on a hot June night. In a case that was a media sensation, Pearl was tried and convicted for the murder of her married boyfriend. At twenty, Joey died in an apartment fire.
Or did she?
Years later, Joey’s friend, Drew – a journalist and podcaster – learns that Pearl is finally getting out of prison and she believes, she KNOWS, that Joey is still alive, living in Seattle under a different name. She was married to a very rich man who died unexpectedly and whose substantial estate is now in question. Death – murder even – seems to follow Joey around.
Drew is determined to find out the truth – whose body was found in the ashes of Joey’s apartment, why did she run away and change her name, and what happened on that fateful night when Joey’s mother’s boyfriend was killed. But with so many already dead, can any of them survive the truth?”
